long ago ideas

“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago." - Friedrich Nietzsche. Long ago, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery conquered false claims that the Book of Mormon was fiction or that it came through a stone in a hat. But these old claims have resurfaced in recent years. To conquer them again, we have to return to what Joseph and Oliver taught.

Reaffirming the New York Cumorah

A few random thoughts related to the reason this blog continues to reaffirm the teachings of the prophets about the New York Cumorah, despite the opposition from the M2C citation cartel.

First, I posted a preliminary version of an article I'm going to post soon on academia.org. It's another example of how our modern LDS historians distort Church history to accommodate M2C.

Here are some relevant thoughts from Twitter.

Don't worry about who will be offended if you speak the truth. Think about who will be misled and deceived if you don't.

One of the most pathetic—and dangerous—signs of our times is the growing number of individuals and groups who believe that no one can possibly disagree with them for any honest reason.

Spend less time convincing people who can't see your vision, and more time building the future with those who do.
